(Update Aug. 14, 2008) A new song has been added in place of TT-In Your Face. Sorry for the inconvenience. I also added a retry button so you don't have to wait for your songs to load over and over again! Hope you enjoy the new song!

(Update: Oct. 07) WOW! 50k views! I'm very impressed on the impact of this game. You better believe that a sequel is in the making. Thanks go to Newgrounds viewers and musicians!

EDIT: Added an extra settings option, synchronization. Now you can fine tune your notes to the beat if the notes are not synchronized!

!!!TIP!!! Hold the keyboard like a guitar, the "NUMBER KEYS" are the frets, the "BACKSPACE" key is the strum bar. Use one hand to play the frets and the other to play the strum bar. Make sure you press the backspace key and the corresponding fret to play the note. Controls can be changed in the settings menu. If you're having a hard time playing, it will get easier if you practice. :)

Needs Improvement.

Awesome game, the style was great, everything was in sync ... but there's one thing that completely shot down this game, the graphics. No offense at all, they were terrible. I should've given the graphics around a two, it's not that you didn't put any effort into the graphics, it's just.. maybe you should've had someone from the forums work on the graphics for you, because right now you have a score of around 3.00, when you could have atleast a score of 3.50 - 4.00+ , I really did enjoy playing this game, but the graphics were to ... simplistic. I know, there's not much time remaining before the deadline. You tried atleast, and you were so close to succeeding. Mediocre work, keep up the coding, and ideas ... but the graphics defiantly need work.

Mediocre? Bah. I can't please everybody. Thanks for the review though, I appreciate your criticism.

The graphics are dragging you down

I love Guitar Hero, and it's absolutely one of my favourite games, and this game is simialr, and it is very fun. You have 3 difficulties for each song, and the songs scale pretty well in difficulty. It was never seeming too hard to do at all, and most times was pretty easy. You had a fairly large list of songs, compared to the competition. You included hammer-ons and pull-offs too, which was fantastic. What aren't you scoring higher?

The coding is great, but the graphics are pretty bad. They're simplistic, aren't very animated, and could have been done way better. If you had someone working with you to do the graphics, you could have most likely scored a lot, a LOT higher, because otherwise this game is fantastic.

This games gameplay is fun, but the graphics are bringing it down. If you could improve those, you might have a shot (although I believe the contest is over very soon).

Its good

But you could improve on a few things, the game play was great, Im aware that you have been accused of stealing the code but dont worry, its just somebody that is pissed because their guitar hero game didnt get finished before you (Ive seen the other game its very similar but there are differences that easily tell the code is different)

Ways to improve would be:
Eye candy- its what GH games are about, and this really lacked in it, never be worried about seeking out a flasher to make you some awesome visuals for a game like this via the forums here or just seeking them out personally.

More Animation- there are allot of moments in this where the screen is more or less static and that REALLY detracts from it, movie clips are awesome and just having them around looking pretty (but not dominating the screen) can really add to the game

Complexity- six threats is a little over the top after all people only have 5 fingers, and they need to use one of them to hold the keyboard. Even if real guitars have over 12 frets, its going to get hard for most people to keep up 4 is really the sweet spot.

All in all this is a pretty good game, just keep at it :D

Woah. That's a real lengthy review. Thanks for the helpful suggestions. I appreciate any helpful criticisms. If you could pm me the other game, that could really help me see what's going on.

fucking awesome!!!!!!!

first off, i really dont know why this is a 6/10 at hte moment, when, as i read the previous reviews, they are all mostly giving you high scores and praising this game.anyways, i love this game. as a fan of guitar hero, i think you really nailed the ho/po nicely. even though it is a clone of frets on fire, i think this games is great, and deserving of a 5.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Love it, addicted, wish I had the console game.

Even though this is basically another game that's been made into a flash, I think it's one of the better ones for the rock out contest. It fits the theme very nicely and the way you setup for how you hold the keyboard was really creative, job well done. I currently have the high score for medium, let's see how long I can hold that for :)
